What is a Trademark?
A "registered trademark", or ®, refers to a name, slogan or logo that has been officially registered with the United States Patent and Trademark Office - USPTO. Each State also offers trademark protection from their Secretaries of State offices.
Registering a trademark is greatly beneficial to any business because it publicly states that your trademark is registered with the USPTO, where people can find you and avoid using your intellectual property.
By registering a trademark you will gain exclusive rights to your name, slogan or logo AND a broader array of potentially similar uses - in sound, appearance and meaning within your industry, than if you merely use your intellectual property without a trademark, or otherwise known as having first use Common Law rights.
Prior to filing for a Federal trademark, comprehensive research of existing and pending State trademarks, USPTO Federal trademarks and Common Law uses and analysis of each is needed to ensure that you are not infringing upon another company's trademark or Common Law rights. You need to know if your name, slogan and/or logo is truly legally available BEFORE you file.
The USPTO and every State limits their research to their own databases only. Your intellectual property may turn out to be clear from their own limited research, and it will take the USPTO up to 6 months to do their research, State internal research varies widely - but this is far from what you need. You need to know if your proposed name, slogan or logo is legally clear today, before use, before filing, for a trademark. Only comprehensive research will determine legal availability.
In the USA, there are 2 million Federal trademarks, 1 million State trademarks and 13 million Common Law uses. So, simply filing a Federal trademark, without comprehensive research means your name will never be researched against 14 million out of 16 million names, slogans and logos that exist before you start your business. You need to comprehensively research your intellectual property BEFORE actual commercial use and filing at the USPTO.
There is a marketing advantage to having a trademark too! Businesses that show the Federal trademark ® symbol for their name, logo or slogan are widely considered to be more credible, established and professional. The ® symbol attracts more sales.
